Repeating the Same Stupid Action Over and Over Again… [UPDATED]

…expecting a different result and all that, not that His Imperial Majesty is at all even remotely convinced that the NSDWP and their Führer are expecting different results, but still.

Guess what’s been happening while everybody has been obsessing about Solyndra? Well, everybody except the media, of course.

DoE is about to hand out another billion of your grandchildren’s money to SCOAMF’s green energy friends, that’s what.

DOE announced a $737 million loan guarantee to help finance construction of the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project, a 110-megawatt solar-power-generating facility in Nye County, Nev. The project is sponsored by Tonopah Solar, a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve.

The Energy Department says the project will result in 600 construction jobs and 45 permanent jobs.

A mere $16,377,000 per job “created or saved”, cheap!!!

Of course, the fact that they’ll only last a year is immaterial. You give His Imperial Majesty 16 cool mil and he personally guarantees that he’ll create more than one job and that it’ll be around for a great deal more than a year too.

But, of course, we’re not exactly on the Friends of Ogabe™ list, so that’s not likely to happen.

“If we want to be a player in the global clean energy race, we must continue to invest in innovative technologies that enable commercial-scale deployment of clean, renewable power like solar,” Energy Secretary Steven Chu said in a statement. “Solar generation facilities, like the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project, help supply energy to local utilities and create hundreds of good, American clean energy jobs.”

“Hundreds” as in “45.”

Math is hard, you know.

Of course, if any of those “good, American clean energy jobs” were actually likely to stay around for longer than it takes His Imperial Majesty to empty a bottle of Russkiy Standart, there’d already be a line of investors begging to throw money at them. But they aren’t, so there isn’t. The only ones who can afford to throw money into a furnace with gay abandon are the thieves of the SCOAMF administration who aren’t, after all, throwing their money anywhere.

But wait, there’s more:

The Energy Department also announced that it had finalized a separate $337 million loan guarantee to Sempra Energy for a 150-megawatt photovoltaic solar generation project in Arizona.

The project will result in 300 construction jobs, DOE said.

As in “300″ temporary jobs that will disappear the day after the construction is complete, which will be the same time that the facility they just built will be closed as their owners file for Chapter 11 protection.

Aren’t you glad that your children and grandchildren’s futures are being destroyed for that?

Such a deal!

The decision to finalize the loan guarantees comes just days before the Energy Department’s advanced energy loan-guarantee program, which was funded under the 2009 stimulus law, expires.

Which, of course, has nothing to do with why they were rushed through. In fact, they weren’t rushed through at all:

top Energy Department officials say they will not approve any projects without subjecting them to detailed analysis.

Every single bit as detailed as the horrifyingly detailed analyses that led to the approval of the Solyndra loan, we’re sure.

Seriously, this shit needs to stop, and it needs to stop yesterday.

Thatisall.

UPDATE: Thanks to LC ORWN and Sestrichka Nicki, we learn that one of the company getting the $737 million of your grandchildren’s money’s investment partners, PCG, has a number two honcho who goes by the name of Ronald… Pelosi. Funny how that name rings a bell, isn’t it? Yes, you’re right, he is actually the brother-in-law of Stretcher Piglousy.

And if you think that’s it, you’re wrong again. Turns out another investment partner of SolarReserve, Argonaut Private Equity, is managed by one Steve Mitchell who, in a stunning conincidence we’re sure, was formerly on the Board of Directors of, you guessed it, Solyndra. (Link.)

We suppose that we should stop making fun of Piglousy’s comments about “crony capitalism” since it appears that nobody knows more about the subject than she does.

So that is what the DoE’s “detailed analysis” is all about? Check to see if applicant is eligible for Comrade SCOAMF’s Friends and Families Program™ and, if so, approve the application immediately.

Yes, we know. It’s truly shocking, isn’t it? Who would have thunk such a thing of the most Ethical Administration EVAH?

    I think Chu meant “hundredths of jobs”. As in “forty five one-hundredths” He should speak clearer.

    IF (and I’m being kind by that) these douche-nozzles actually cared about “energy production”, they would be building liqued salt thorium reactors (LSTR). Thorium would come from coal, then the excess heat from the salts would be able to gassify the coal to turn it into gasolene. This would give use electricty and gasoline from one facility with all materials from inside the borders of our great country. No more concern about OPEC or any other camel-fucker becasue we are self-sufficient for ALL of our energy needs. Wait, that makes too much sense, therefore could never happen in their marxist utopia. This is nothing more than spending us into oblivion and giving some “boodle” to one of their marxist friends.

    a 110-megawatt solar-power-generating facility

    Are you fucking kidding me? That’s about enough power to provide power needs for a few thousand homes. The nukes and larger coal-fired plants in contrast, produced on the order of 1000-1500 megawatts.

    Do the math, that’s a fucking joke in power consumption for a few microwave ovens. Now, the other factor is footprint. This type facility typically needs about 200 acres more or less, for the field of heliostats. A typical nuke, just the generation portion of the facility can be built on <10 acres.

    This is exactly why there isn’t much funding for solar….too damned small realistically to be of use and still dependent on environmental conditions.

    A complete non-starter from the get-go. I can’t imagine why anyone even bothers. We already have a number of these projects in operation with no hint of a breakthrough in the technology coming.

    IDIOTS !!!

    The analyses go like this:
    1. Solar energy scam artists bribe SCOAMF.
    2. Application approved.

    See Rezko, Tony: Blago, Rod: Burris, Roland: Emmanuel, Rahm: Daley, Richard: et al.

    So, what the h-e-double-toothpicks are we supposed to do for power at NIGHT, you douchebags?!?

    Seriously, this shit needs to stop, and it needs to stop yesterday.

    Ain’t gonna happen with Obambi and his Band of Merry Thugs in office.
    And the Just-Us Department won’t look into anything these dirtbags are foisting on us…

    I hope and pray the Republic holds together until January 2013 !!

    Ho-hum, another business-as-usual day inside the beltway. Just where is that crazed Jihadi with
    the back-pack nuke when we need him? Not that they would do us any favors.

    btw. Any bets on who, when and how many pardons the Kenyon Klingon Fucker will issue prior to his depature for his mud hut?

    Jesus H Christ, I just answered my own fucking question. He’s already signed the pardons and postdated them. These cocksuckers are making the Mafia look like law-abiding citizens.

    If I hear another libtard open their yap and say Nixon/Reagan/Bush should have been prosecuted I’m going to put my boot so far up their ass they’re going to taste fresh dog shit.

    Today on the radio I heard part of a commercial for the New Green Navy; they are going to be shifting all their power usage to new, Green energy sources, except for Nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers. Like most navy and greenie messages, it was somewhat muddled, and I will be interested to hear it more clearly the next time. But for now, I can only presume the fleet will be returning to the legendary Age of Sail. And maybe a few Roman oar-driven galleys.

    Yeah I heard that as well today, and I was wondering if our millitary was still just to be used to break shit and kill people, or to promote ManBearPigs agenda.

    All these fuckers need to die, and it’s not even the Oktoberfest talking tonight.
